Hi, I'm Mike! I grew up in Phoenix, AZ and have owned two dogs in my life. I currently live in Salt Lake City, UT and have a dog back home with my parents in Phoenix. I love taking my dog on long walks every time I go back to visit my parents. He's a small Maltese-Poodle mix, but very friendly and loves to play. I enjoy being around animals and pets as well as bringing them to new places to experience. I became a dog walker because of how much I regularly miss my dog.

Dog Boarding in Salt Lake City

Heading out of town for a while and can’t take your dog with you? Don’t start comparing dog kennels near you just yet. Instead, why not find a trusted dog boarder or dog sitter in Salt Lake City, UT, with Wag!?

This means your dog gets the sort of attention and TLC they can only get when being looked after in a loving home environment. On your end, you get the peace of mind of knowing that your dog is staying with a trusted and responsible pet caregiver.

If you’d like, the pet caregiver can even take your pup out for an adventure to explore some of Salt Lake City’s best dog-friendly trails, such as the Millcreek Canyon trails. Now that should definitely get your dog’s tail wagging!

Before searching for dog sitting services or dog boarding in Salt Lake City, it’s important to consider the cost involved. Let’s take a closer look at the average cost of overnight care in Salt Lake City.

Average Cost of Dog Boarding in Salt Lake City, UT

Average dog boarding prices in Salt Lake City can vary greatly depending on the type of accommodation you want for your pet. 

If you’re just looking for a basic Salt Lake City dog boarding facility that offers all the essentials, you can often expect to pay a base fee of $35 to $45 per night — but then have to pay extra for a range of key services. For example, if you want your dog to be walked during their stay, to get a bath, or to be given any medication, then many kennels will charge you additional fees.

You also have the option of booking your pup in for a stay at a luxury Salt Lake City dog boarding kennel. These venues provide overnight accommodation for those pets who enjoy the finer things in life. They offer spacious luxury suites, state-of-the-art play zones, and a host of other treats, and they aim to provide first-class care for your pup. 

Of course, they come at a cost, with prices often starting in the $45 to $60 range. Once again, services like one-on-one playtime or walkies for your pup often cost extra, so read the fine print closely before you book.

In comparison, you can book your pup in for a stay with loving Salt Lake City dog boarders with Wag! and save a whole lot of money. With rates starting from just $39 a night, getting your dog the best possible care doesn’t have to break the bank.

Average Cost of Dog Sitting in Salt Lake City, UT

If you’d rather your pet received one-on-one care and attention while you’re away, you might want to compare Salt Lake City dog sitting services. The average price for dog sitting in Salt Lake City typically ranges anywhere from $55 to $100.

However, it’s once again important to check the fine print to find out what’s included in that price. For example, some Salt Lake City dog sitters will charge extra for walking your pup or giving them medication. Some will offer a 9-hour stay with your pet, others will mind them for 12 hours at a time.

But if you book Salt Lake City dog sitting with Wag!, overnight care rates start from $39 a night. This includes potty breaks and unlimited playtime for your fur-baby, which we’re sure you’ll agree is a “pawsome” deal.

Dog Boarding in Salt Lake City, UT

Leaving your dog behind when you go away can be heartbreaking, so it’s important to know that your pup will get the best possible care while you’re gone. And when you book dog boarders in Salt Lake City with Wag!, you can sleep safe in the knowledge that Wag! pet caregivers are experienced and loving pet people.

But how do you book dog boarding services through us? The process is simple. To get started, download the Wag! app, create an account, and tell us about your pup. Then you can select “Boarding” from the range of Overnight Care services, enter your travel dates, and start browsing the profiles of dog boarders in Salt Lake City.

Take your time to see what each person has to offer. How much experience do they have? Have they cared for pets like yours before? What do other pet parents have to say about their services? Once you’ve decided on your pup’s “pawfect” match, you can contact them using the in-app chat feature to discuss your pet’s boarding needs. 

Then when you head away, your pooch gets to stay in a loving environment in the boarder’s own home. You’ll even be kept updated with photos and videos throughout their stay.

All things considered, it’s really not hard to see why 95% of boarding bookings through Wag! result in a 5-star review!

Dog Sitting in Salt Lake City, UT

If being apart from you is already as much disruption as your pup can handle, maybe they’d prefer overnight dog sitting. The best part about this approach is that your dog gets the comfort and security of sleeping in their own bed and staying in their own home. This ensures minimal disturbance to your pup’s routine and can help keep separation anxiety problems at bay.

Here’s how it works. Select “Sitting” from the range of Overnight Care services in the Wag! app, then select your sleepover dates to see a list of in-home dog sitters near you. 

Once again, it’s essential that you take some time to find the ideal person to look after your pup. Check out what sort of experience each candidate has, and assess whether they’d be a good fit for your dog’s “pawsonality”. When you’ve found the ideal candidate, use Wag! Chat to run your pet caregiver through the ins and outs of caring for your pup.

Choosing dog sitters in Salt Lake City with Wag! means your fur-baby can enjoy all the creature comforts of home while you’re gone. And you won’t miss any of the action either, as you’ll receive photos and videos of your pup’s adventures until you return home.
